fyi - I went to BB at Bay and Dundas last night (~7pm) and the sales guy said it is on sale for $299 so I ended up picking one up for that price.

Background...The Rogers rep there suggested you had to buy a tv to get that price and that it was an error but another customer and I said BB should honor it b/c technically on the flyer (pg 16 I think, not pg 14) it doesn't say anything about having to buy a tv. A sales rep was standing next to us when we said that and he seemed resigned to that fact and said, yes, it is on sale for $299. I did try FS for a pm but they seemed ready for me and said flat out they would not pm (orders for HQ, or so they say) b/c BB retracted the price earlier in the day.

Anyway, bottom line is that as of last night, BB was offering up $299 for it. YMMV I suppose but give it a shot!

I bought this last month for $385, and around noon I walked into the Bay and Dundas store and got $85 + tax back thanks to price protection! Woohoo!

The associate checked their inventory computer and said it's showing at $499 so I told her to check bestbuy.ca and she immediately signed off on it, no questions asked. I guess this was VERY close to the same time they increased the price for the 2nd time in 2 days, back to $499.

Went to FS at 403 and Dundas with the BB flyer to get a price match last night but they said that in order to get it at that price I had to purchase a TV. They said that they called BB and BB requires a TV purchase to get that price.
I then went over to BB at 403 and Dundas, picked up a box and went straight to the cashier and it rang up as $499. I showed the cashier the flyer and they corrected the price to $299.

Whohoo...I called Best Buy support yesterday to complain about how the following coupon code wasn't working when I tried to apply it to my order that I placed at $299 online and they said they would open a ticket and investigate it. I explained to them that this coupon is valid until Dec 23.

$25 off over $250
Taken from: http://www.redflagdeals.com/forums/show ... buy+coupon

I got an e-mail last night saying to call in and they would manually discount the order. Did just that, and they applied the $25 off coupon to my order making it $275 + shipping + tax = $318.64!

If anyone was able to order the HD-PVR at $299.99 online successfully, call 1-866-237-8289 and complain about the above coupon not working. They will hopefully allow a manual discount to be applied similar to what happened to me!

I want to the Bestbuy Whitby Friday for my pickup and they wouldn't honour the $299 price. I went Sunday to try another sales rep. It rang up as $499. I showed her my email confirmation showing $299 and she changed the price no problem.

My online order was shipped today ($299.99). No TV purchase necessary.

The price is back up to $499 on the BB website.

I think this deal is dead, best case scenario is YMMV. Mods perhaps want to edit the thread title?

Rogers 8300HD PVR is on sale again (without TV purchase) at BEST BUY for $349.99.

Listed at Future Shop for $499, so I showed them BB's flyer and they price matched minus 10% difference...$349.99 - $15 = $334.99 (+ tax)

It's not $299...but it's not bad.
